DARI-KOOL Milk Cooling Systems
Fabdec’s range of milk cooling systems offer the dairy farmer the ultimate in milk cooling technology. From pre-cooling systems such as plate coolers and ice builders through to bulk milk tanks and heat recovery systems, Fabdec has the solution for every stage of the milk cooling process.
DX-FF Milk Tanks
Bulk Milk Cooling Tanks
Fabdec’s DX-FF range of bulk milk tanks are designed to offer extreme efficiency and outstanding reliability. Using state-of-the-art technology they provide advanced cooling and washing performance every time, ensuring that the quality of the milk is maintained. Every Fabdec tank is manufactured from high quality stainless steel and comes with a long-term guarantee for complete peace of mind.
The standard DX-FF tank is designed for indoor use. However for outdoor applications the DX-FF ‘KOOL-STOR’ model has a fully weatherproof control unit making it suitable for external use. A DX-FF ‘Low Profile’ model is available for installation in dairies where height or space restrictions apply. All models are available in capacities ranging from 1200 to 34,000 litres to suit the individual requirements of any farm.
QUANTUS & MAGNUS
Plate coolers are very efficient at taking heat out of milk and play an important role in ensuring milk is cooled quickly for storage. Using mains or ice water they reduce the demand for electrical energy and are extremely cost effective.
Fabdec QUANTUS plate coolers are manufactured from high quality stainless steel. They are wall-mounted with clip on gaskets for ease of replacement. Floor-mounting is also an option.
Fabdec MAGNUS plate coolers are manufactured to the same high quality but are floor-mounted with large format plates for high performance and are suitable for a high milk flow of up to 18,000 litres per hour.
Tubular pre-coolers are particularly well suited to robotic milking systems. The milk is only in contact with the
stainless steel tube within SPIRA-KOOL and cleaning takes place together with the robot milkline.
Unlike a plate cooler SPIRA-KOOL has no seals and can be emptied with compressed air, meaning that milk
does not remain in the pre-cooler for long. Well water, tap water or ice water can all be used with SPIRA-KOOL.
Fabdec KOOL-PAK ice builders are used in conjunction with plate coolers to provide ice water for additional pre-cooling of the milk, helping to improve milk quality. They are economical to run as they largely use over night electricity on a cheap night rate to build the ice bank and have potential to cut cooling costs by a third.
HEAT RECOVERY SYSTEMS
The idea of heat recovery is simple. Waste heat from any refrigeration process can be recovered and converted into hot water at temperatures of up to 60°C. The current energy situation means this technology is now of paramount importance.
Fabdec has pioneered heat recovery successfully for 3 decades and our product SPAR-HEAT offers simplicity and security. It uses a double-walled coil heat exchanger, has no moving parts and is simple to install.
Agricultural Unvented Water Heaters
The Uni-Heat agricultural unvented water heaters provide hot water on demand for bulk tank washing and similar uses around the dairy farm. Utilising the 50 years experience gained in stainless steel fabrication and heat transfer technology Uni-Heat systems provide economical high performance tank washing and proven long life expectancy from a durable and robust design.
